IGST 2018

The IGST conference series aims at bringing together leading experts as well as early stage researchers working on integrable structures underlying gauge and string theory.  Tools of integrability continue to provide us with sophisticated means of acquiring crucial novel insight into a large class of models of interest for high energy physics as well as condensed matter physics and mathematics. IGST 2018 is dedicated to the presentation of the most recent developments along these lines with special emphasis on, but not limited to, holographic set-ups.

Topics to be covered include integrability in relation to correlation functions and Wilson loops, the conformal bootstrap program, scattering amplitudes, entanglement entropy, tensor models, defect CFT’s and much more.
